Last night I sat up in bed and had the best time looking at his catalog I just knew I had to share it with you today.

I was only 6 in 1972 (go ahead and add it up, I am 48) so I don't really remember too much about what people were wearing, but I did find these photos from my childhood. All from 1972, Check out how beautiful my mother glamorous!

So, now onto this awesome catalog!..............................Please note how fashionable my mother dressed us compared to this catalog. No wonder I love fashion so much........So On Trend! Thanks Mom!
